| Formulaic film with a good cast
Taylor and Rockwell are serviceable b- and c- level leading men of the era who undoubtedly worked for a discount salary. Thats OK, they are what they are and never do a bad job in any role. Dorothy Patrick is a well-built blonde who every man would want; she is very desirable while always maintaining a wholesomeness that can't be lost even in a bad-girl role like she has here. Estelita enhances this film with a lovely singing voice and an engaging upbeat persona- she really sings beautifully and she is worth your time to hear. Excellent supporting actors round out the cast.

This film is made strictly according to the b-movie government agent formula of the era (in this case customs agents), and you have seen it all before. Most of it is indoors on routine cheap movie sets. However, finally near the end some money is expended by the producers and you get some real action location work at an actual seaport. These scenes are pretty good and lead to a satisfying conclusion. After all, there is nothing wrong with a good old-fashioned formula style rousing ending, is there?

This group of lesser-known actors do good work and keep "Federal Agent At Large" watchable for me.
